Underdog Order Process

Getting your film processed by Underdog Film Lab is both simple and convenient. Just follow these steps to get to submit your film.

1. Ordering
Fill out an order on our website under Photo Services > Film Processing

My film rolls are all of the same type and have the same processing requirements:
Fill out a single order, and change the quantity next to the Add to Cart button at the bottom of the order page to add as many rolls of film as you want processed.

My film rolls are all of differing types and/or have different processing requirements: 
Add each item as a separate order before you check out.
